Height: 36" tall

Culture: Sun to Part Sun

Origin: United States

Pot Size: 3.5" pot (24 fl. oz/0.7 L)

$12.00   
Baptisia australis is an easy-to-grow, drought-tolerant, deer-resistant North American native that is always a perennial favorite (pardon the pun) for the border or the wild garden. This native has upright stems clothed with peanut-like, trifoliate (three-lobed), blue-green, waxy foliage on a clump that can easily cover an area 3' wide. In early spring before the clump bulks up, the awesome blue lupine-like flower racemes are held atop the foliage. Baptisia australis was selected by the Royal Horticultural Society as one of their top 200 plants of the last 200 years...quite an honor.

This amazing 2007 Baptisia sphaerocarpa x Baptisia alba hybrid makes a 40" tall specimen, including the 1' tall terminal spike, that is overly endowed with very showy buttery yellow flowers. Baptisia 'Blonde Bombshell' typically starts flowering for us (NC) in late April. We think you're really going to enjoy having this blonde bombshell in your garden.

2014 Green Thumb Award winner from the Direct Gardening Association! (Baptisia PDN2004-157) We have long felt the need for an improved baptisia with large blue-purple flowers and have been breeding toward that goal since 1998, culminating with our 2014 release of Baptisia 'Blue Towers'. This 2004 Baptisia australis x Baptisia alba hybrid has a very upright, tower-like form to 4.5', which includes a huge 20" tall flower spike of large blue-lavender flowers. The tall stalks without basal foliage allow for companion planting around the base. For us, Baptisia 'Blue Towers' starts flowering around late April (NC).

We are thrilled to be able to offer this 2002 introduction from the late Rob Gardner. Baptisia 'Carolina Moonlight' was discovered by Rob as a random seedling at the NC Botanical Garden. This cross of North American natives Baptisia sphaerocarpa and Baptisia alba produces a vigorous, easy-to-grow, deer-resistant, 3' wide garden specimen of blue-green foliage. Baptisia 'Carolina Moonlight' is topped in late spring with stunning 18" spikes of soft buttery-yellow flowers. This great lupine substitute is long-lived, heat-loving, and drought-tolerant...you can't say the same for true lupines!

$13.00   
Baptisia 'Purple Smoke' is a 1996 introduction, selected by the late NC Botanical Garden curator, Rob Gardner, from seedling at the garden. 'Baptisia 'Purple Smoke' is a cross of the North American native Baptisia minor var. aberrans (not Baptisia australis as is often printed) and a wandering Baptisia alba...obviously, some unsafe plant sex had taken place. The result is an extremely vigorous, deer-resistant baptisia with charcoal-green stems (when mature) and dozens of giant lupine-like flower heads of dusty purple. You will grow to love the outstanding Baptisia 'Purple Smoke' more each year as the clump matures...SUPERB!
